FRENCH RIVIERA & PROVENCE
The Côte d’Azur, a forty-two mile coastline stretching from Saint Tropez to the Italian border, is world famous for its luxury hotels, beaches and wonderful microclimate.
Nice International Airport, France’s second airport after Paris, welcomes every year over 9 million passengers and is serviced daily by more than 100 direct flights from European and long haul destinations. Transfer time from Nice to Cannes or Monaco is just 30 minutes.
A little inland, away from the glamorous coastline, the French Riviera offers the visitor the chance to discover its enchanting old towns, hilltop villages, Roman ruins, many art museums including Renoir, Chagall, Matisse, Picasso, perfume manufacturing, gastronomic restaurants and unlimited sports activities…
A trip to the South is incomplete without discovering the magic light and scents of Provence that so inspired Van Gogh and many other artists. Cities bursting with culture and history such as Avignon or Aix-en-Provence, colourful markets in charming villages, lavender fields and the impressive Mediterranean coastline with its creeks and sandy beaches, mystical Camargue with its bulls and flamingos - all this is Provence…
The Phocean city of Marseille, France’s third largest city after Paris and Lyon, is the “new” convention destination of the South - it is developing at a rapid pace an impressive infrastructure of transport, hotels, congress centres and exceptional venues.
